Gratitude post!

This weekend has been lovely. I’ve felt a sense of relief and release. Friday evening I did a “letting go” yoga flow that made me feel amazing and helped shift the pent up energy and inner conflict I’ve felt throughout the rest of the week.

I’m so grateful for that yoga session and time I spent with myself.

Saturday morning I woke up early feeling a bit of stomach upset, so I got up and started my day instead of going back to bed feeling sorry for myself. I went straight to work on my university writing assignment, as I felt called to do so and creatively ready for it.

It was a big bit of rewriting but it flowed perfectly! I ended up spending 3 hours writing that morning, which I haven’t done in a while. It was for my uni work, my wattpad story submission, and my blog. Variety, creativity and flow! I’m so glad I chose to get up and get going as it set the tone for the rest of my day.

I am so grateful for my writing and the flow state it grants me.

The rest of Saturday was spent relaxing, walking in the sun with my partner and our dog. We had good, stimulating, deep conversation while we walked in nature. I dressed nice and it felt great. I put in the effort. We made skewers for dinner which is something a little different and it tasted so good! We chilled and watched films. It was perfect.

I am grateful for the little treasures in life that often go unnoticed but are the big things in disguise.

Sunday morning I woke before my partner again and had a cup of coffee. I only drink it on the weekends as it effects me a lot. But it was delicious. I really appreciate a good cup of coffee. There’s something creative and inspiring about it. I then did a morning meditation and stretch to greet my day, which set the tone again.

I am grateful for sunny mornings and a cup of nurturing coffee.

The rest of Sunday I spent doing my university writing. My final deadline is coming soon. I felt a bit overwhelmed at first and so I decided to close my laptop and move my body instead. I put on a 10 minute workout, then a 20 minute one, then did some yoga to cool down. I got sweaty and breathless and my heart racing. I felt immense! I don’t often do workouts like this, so I was grateful that I decided to do it and didn’t give up.

I am grateful for my body and the endless amazing things it does for me each day; I can do hard things.

And finally, I got my writing done after the workout. The bad energy had shifted. I felt good and creative and ready. I feel happier with my writing now. It’s coming along nicely.

I am grateful for the lessons I learn each day, from formal education and the education of life.

What are you grateful for this week?

Sincerely,

S. xx
